On May 20, 2013, an EF5 tornado destroyed Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, OK, claiming 24 lives and changing that community forever. The destruction made national headlines, and while families were picking up the pieces of their lives the school district was setting the foundation for a new school. By the next August, a new Plaza Towers Elementary welcomed students, one complete with a storm shelter and lessons learned.
